Cobras 32 - Rice 30
Hallettsville 33- Cobras 30
With girls basketball starting the second run through district play, the Jackson County girls teams are still fighting for playoff position. In 3A, the Cobras are clinging to the final playoff spot but the Cowgirls have a lot of work to do, and will need some help, to be able to jump up to a playoff spot.
The Cobra girls had a four game district winning streak going befor losing a close game to Hallettsville.
“I think the biggest issue the first time through district play was we really struggled offensively some nights and our district is pretty tough,” Cobra head coach Dylan Jackson said. “If you look at the scores on a given night anybody can beat anybody. I think we have to work on consistency on offense and defense and every day just get better. We are finally healthy and have everybody together. The girls have been a joy to Coach they buy into everything that we’re teaching and we’re finally starting to see some results.”
The Maidens are still hangind around but will need to go on a run, and win some of the close games they have been losing, in order to grab a playoff spot. They lost a very close game to number 8 ranked Schulenburg to close out the week.

The Cobra boys teams have been on a streak, undefeated in district play, and blowing away opponents.
“We try to keep things the same when we are on a roll,” Industrial head coach Rusty Roe said. “The most important game is the next one and we don’t look ahead in our schedule. With the shorter season because of the football playoffs and with limited games because of the elimination of our basketball tournaments this year, we are about three weeks behind where we would like to be. We are constantly working on getting better for each game.
“This group of juniors and seniors have been playing sports together for the past 10 years and they have that special bond that you have to have for teams to be successful. They want to win the game more than their own personal goals.”
Industrial knows there is still a lot of work to do before the playoffs start and their first goal is getting the district crown again.
“We need to make sure we aren’t satisfied with our current results and need to remember that teams are always trying to knock us off,” Roe said. “We want to be cutting the nets down on Feb. 12 with another district championship.”
The Cowboys did pick up a win against Rice this week, but it has been a tough go so far. The Cowboys and Ganado both will have to turn things around in a hurry, in order to make a run to try to grab a playoff spot.

And, a bit of humor.
Industrial has been waiting for a new camera so they could get back to having their basketball games broadcast on the NFHS network. After the new camera was installed, this message was sent out
“After weeks of waiting we finally received our new (refurbished) camera for the gym. Only to get it installed and find out one camera is completely upside down. We are hoping this will be an easy fix, as NFHS said they should be able to remote in and fix the issue.
“As soon as the cameras are up and running we will update everyone.”
